IPS: IRL: Iowa: Andretti Green Racing Friday notes

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"I certainly would have liked to have gotten a full day in today, but that's the way everybody feels, I'm sure. The Motorola car feels pretty good right now, but we need to find some more speed to get up where we want to be. For sure, I can tell already that whoever can get their car to stay on the bottom of the racetrack all day on Sunday is going to be hard to beat."

Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"It was not a good day for the 7-Eleven team today. We were definitely lacking speed. The car was understeering a bit but the overall balance was okay. We broke a throttle cable and that set us back, too. We need to find more speed if we want to compete for the win Sunday."

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"I'm happy with what we were able to accomplish today. The NYSE car was good overall. We'll spend some time tomorrow on the qualifying setup but with this being a new track, we'll need to focus more on our race car."

Dario Franchitti, #27 Canadian Club Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"This track is very challenging. With the rain, we didn't get as much time on the track as we needed. We didn't have the speed in the Canadian Club car that we were looking for, but we will make a few changes and see what we have tomorrow."

Jaime Camara, #11 oso*fresh Dallara/Firestone

"The qualifying run for the oso*fresh car was okay. We were hoping to get more speed out of the car after the practice sessions. I thought I would challenge for the pole today, but we just didn't have the car. We will figure it out for the race tomorrow."
